The Pi-Rate Ratings

September 19, 2011

PiRate Ratings: College Football for September 22-24, 2011

Let’s tune in to our favorite radio drama serial—All My Expansions.  In today’s episode, the evil John Swofford has taken away two suitors, Syracuse and Pittsburgh, from his neighbor, John Marinatto.  That leaves Marinatto in a bit of purgatory with his comrade Dan Beebe.  Beebe has already lost a suitor, Texas A&M, to Mike Slive, and that western, swashbuckling, showman Larry Scott is going to rustle away the rest of Beebe’s prime cattle in Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and Texas.

 

Tune in tomorrow to see if Baylor’s lawsuit against Texas A&M will have any effect on the SEC, or if it comes back to bite the Bears on the tush, leaving them out in the cold after every other conference shuns them.

 

We will find out if Texas Governor Rick Perry gets hit from Mitt Romney and Michelle Bachmann on his A&M to the SEC issue.  On second chance, they have so much ammunition on the Gardasil issue, a higher debt to GDP ratio in Texas than in California (that Perry has more than doubled since he has been governor), and the fact that Texas has the most minimum wage jobs per capita in the US.  So he can slide and continue to be just a former A&M yell leader.

 

Okay, political rants aside, there were some big games this past weekend.  Oklahoma went on the road and held Florida State at bay for most of the night.  Florida once again punished Tennessee in the Swamp.  Andrew Luck went on the road to Tucson and led Stanford to an impressive win.  Miami showed the nation that Ohio State will probably lose more games this season.  Temple almost upset Penn State.  Most of all, it is amazing to see a number of surprising 3-0 teams.  In the ACC, Clemson ended Auburn’s long winning streak, and the Tigers are 3-0.  North Carolina, without Butch Davis, is 3-0.  In the Big East, South Florida and West Virginia are only mildly surprising 3-0 teams, while you can say the same about Illinois and Michigan in the Big Ten.  Iowa State, Wyoming, Vanderbilt, and Florida International may be the four biggest surprise teams at 3-0.  The Cyclones own wins over Iowa and Connecticut.  The Cowboys won at Bowling Green.  Vanderbilt blew Ole Miss off the field, while Florida International beat Central Florida after beating Louisville.
